When I stopped going to meetings, I faded away slowly. We always tend to think that we are the ones who faded away and that the JW's in general wanted us to stay.
But if you think about it, the elders, MS, and every good JW who still attend meetings, are also the ones fading. The only difference is that they are fading the people who left. Instead of trying to keep in touch and help a brother or sister to come back, they fade their love and past friendships because the Watchtower says so.
When I left, no ordinary witness came over to try to make me come back or show love and sincere friendship. Their love for me as an individual faded away faster than I did the fade from the Organization.
